“We’re launching a new series of free webinars, the Horizon Connect series, featuring thought leaders, game changers, and innovators who are making a difference right now in the world of educational technology. Who better to kick off that new series than educator/author extraordinaire Howard Rheingold? Join us for this live event on Thursday, March 22 at 10:30 am CST / 8:30 am PST.
In Howard’s newest book, Net Smart: How to Thrive Online, he discusses the use of digital and social media as a source of empowerment. There is a difference between using it actively and passively, and Howard shows us how to bridge that gap.
“Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time,” Howard shares. “I outline five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this.”
In this Horizon Connect webinar, he will be helping you think more strategically about digital media and answering your questions live.
